Tip & How-To about Microwave Ovens

Microwave vs Induction

I find that cooking with induction is far safer than with Microwave ovens. The food is totally saturated with emfs when cooking in a microwave, whereas with induction it is not totally enclosed in concentrated emfs. Only problem is you can only use stainless steel or cast iron cookware (No aluminum base)

how to set temperature in Samsung microwave. 160 c means ? watts.

They're totally non-interchangeable as they're two totally different ways of cooking.

There is no correlation at all between a temperature setting used by electric and fan ovens and the microwave power level, there's not even a rule of thumb. For microwave cooking, the fat, sugar and water content of any given food item as well as the mass and shape are what determine cooking times and microwave power levels, and not all foods can be safely microwaved as high fat/sugar content foods may catch fire.

The unit seems extremely quiet and fills with steam when cooking. I'm concerned the exhaust fan on the microwave isn't working properly. I just got it so I can only compare it to other microwaves.

How old is the oven ???, Is the food saturated with water ???, Is the exhaust clear from any obstacle ??? Do you feel air coming out the exhaust when it's running ??? (compared to when it's not) if it's a new model it is NORMAL, newer (expensive) models tend to keep moisture in the oven... they are built that way to prevent drying out food (on the plate rim) or (if it's fresh from the box) check for forgotten PACKING material that could prevent the oven from exhausting properly... you could also call the manufacturer/GE to check with them as well...

Toaster Master 1979 has less power

Because the microwave energy is beamed into the interior of the microwave and then dispersed by a metallic "stirrer," the pattern of the energy can be fairly consistent, rather than completely random. But this pattern sometimes causes certain portions of the food to overcook (creating tough spots) and others to undercook. A microwave oven with a carousel is far better at cooking the food consistently--the pattern becomes quite random while the carousel is turning.
